Love and Compassion ♥♪♫*¨*•.¸¸ ॐ
We can reject everything else:
religion, ideology, all received wisdom.
But we cannot escape the necessity of love
This, then, is my true religion, my simple faith. In this sense, there is no
need for temple or church, for mosque or synagogue, no need for complicated
philosophy, doctrine or dogma. Our own heart, our own mind, is the temple.
The doctrine is compassion.
Love for others and respect for their rights
and dignity, no matter who or what they are:
ultimately these are all we need.
So long as we practice these in our daily lives, then no matter if
we are learned or unlearned, whether we believe in Buddha or God, or follow some
other religion or none at all, as long as we have compassion for others and
conduct ourselves with restraint out of a sense of responsibility, there is no
doubt we will be happy.
— His Holiness The Dalai
